Dutch Openings

Richard Sharp's name for any German opening using F Kie-Hol and A Ber-Kie. There are three named variations: the Burgundy Attack, the Silesian and the Tyrolian. There are no prizes for guessing what the differences are.

Burgundy Attack

A Ber-Kie, A Mun-Bur, F Kie-Den is Germany's 4th most common opening. Unless a standoff in Bur occurs, this bespeaks an aggressive German player almost certainly allied with England. A standoff is more ambiguous, but may be Germany's attempt to head off a France-England-Russian blitz.

A Ber-Kie, A Mun-Bur, F Kie-Hol is Germany's third most common opening, and a standoff in Bur may well be arranged. This is Germany's most westerly oriented opening, and its success is usually dependent on who, if anyone, has entered the English Channel.
